They were uploading torrents and extorting downloaders

Εισαγγελείς στην Ταϊβάν απήγγειλαν κατηγορίες σε πέντε άτομα για την δημιουργία μιας επιχείρησης που ανέβαζε ταινίες στο Διαδίκτυο και στη συνέχεια εκβίαζε τους downloaders χρήστες του BitTorrent.

One of them is former ultramarathon runner Kevin Lin, who founded a copyright consulting firm after graduating from law school in 2020.

Σύμφωνα με αναφορές, η εταιρεία του Lin παρέσυρε τους χρήστες να κατεβάζουν torrents, παρακολουθούσε τις διευθύνσεις IP τους και στη συνέχεια υπέβαλε αγωγές πνευματικών δικαιωμάτων.

Lin, however, has indicated that because of his support for the opposition and his criticism of the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, the investigation against him is politically motivated, according with TorrentFreak.

In May 2021, they uploaded 18 movies from Vie Vision Pictures Co. and Applause Entertainment Ltd, on BitTorrent networks, to entice users to download them.

After recording their IP addresses, Lin's company found their identities from the ISPs and sued them.

The goal was to be achieved out of court. As of August 2021, Lin's company has filed 937 copyright infringement lawsuits.

In 25 of those cases, the company managed to extort $29.207 in “settlements,” FocusTaiwan reports.
